Wow. Continental on day 1. I've been at it on and off for a few years now, and I still only flirt with it. I guess you could say that English is my first language, but I can go both ways...
But not when I purl, which is the main reason I only flirt with the French. (Knot when I purl?)


I forgot to ask...Are you going to hide or share your stash????


I once taught a 8-year-old girl who was a natural. She made even stitches and even figured out when she did not finish a stitch, and how to correct it. We never got to purl because I was teaching 3 other kids that night. (BTW, FYI, a knitting party is a great activity for a sleep-over with girls. It is amazing how quiet it got when the girls started playing with yarn. I am not sure what would happen with boys.) I have lost touch with the kid, but I still remember the thrill. I can only hope I "infected" another generation....


But can he knit socks?


Kudos to student and instructor! Dang, that's quick recall.
